Hi lovely ladies - am after some advice please.....
I've just turned 32 & have endo. I've had 2 laps in the past, plus 6 months of Zoladex in between. The last lap being 3 years ago during which they fitted me with the mirena. It's been GREAT since then - no pain, hardly any periods etc - so happy!
However, I got my coil removed July 2012 - periods retuned within 3 weeks are are regular which is good. We started having lots of sex and trying for a baby pretty much straight away. I realise the first few months don't really count as my body was 'adjusting' plus I was hugely anxious the endo would return and I had BAD mood swings for 3 months (did anyone else get this!?) Anyway - since Xmas 2012 and this year I'm loads calmer, mood swings have lessened & I'm taking evening primrose oil and looking after myself more. Now I'm getting a promotion at work in July (ironically, covering someone's maternity leave ha ha!) so last month we decided to stop trying and I actually felt happier for it - pressure off!
So, my main question is: can I afford to 'put off' trying for say 6 months or will my endo get worse/return with each natural period I have? I have no interest in going back on contraception and of course I want to avoid a 3rd lap.
ALSO - I have an appointment booked for this this Thurs to see my specialist who performed my laps (at the cost of £170 for 30 mins...aaaaaah!!) - should I cancel this appointment now that we are 'not currently trying' or go see him anyway but I suspect he will say 7 months of trying isnt really long enough to run any tests?
Confused & a bit anxious!!
